Re: Great American R/C Hobby Shop Directory 2023

they used to have pretty decent burgers but you get very little for your money these days. Way it goes with good burger joints... Starts out all, "Woah, now that's a burger!" then becomes, "Aww, look at the cute 'lil burger". Dunno... the chit-chat kinda gives the list some life...

What in the R/C would you do?

So, I'm reading this article the other day about the future of R/C charging. A company was touting their technology which allowed over the air charging of cars while they were running, with a tagline like, "Never charge your R/C car again!". And it got me to thinking... is the R/C industry...
